Phyllis Tresa Sloan

Resident of Santa Clara
Our Mom, Phyllis, known by many as Nani, passed away on Tuesday. She was born and raised in Santa Clara, daughter of Augusta and Manuel Sereno. She was in real estate and then a tax consultant until age 78. She was very devoted to her family and touched many. She had a strong spirit with a gentle side. She was the rock and driving force in our family. She had one love in her life A.D. Sloan, who she married at age 19 and became a widow at 49. She was preceded by her sister Bernie Matasci, who was her kindred spirit. She has 3 devoted children, Wayne Sloan, JoAnn Brunetti & David Sloan; seven grandchildren, Bret, Bart, David and Michael Sloan, Curt Brunetti, Kristie Messina, and Kelle Sanders; six great-grandchildren, Sara, Ryan, Brandon, and Lauren Sloan, Greyson Adams, Alexa Brunetti; two special brothers, Gil Sereno from Paradise and Manuel Sereno of San Jose; and many nieces and nephews that she loved dearly! We were blessed to have her in our life for 88 years! She was generous to her family and will be missed by those who loved her. A private family memorial was held. Donations may be made in her name to the Carmelite Monastery, that she loved so much, 1000 Lincoln St., Santa Clara, CA 95050.
